Kitty Genovese was infamously murdered in 1964, while 38 of her neighbors stood by doing nothing. Here Kitty Kitty is a present-day exploration of the "bystander effect" attributed to that murder via a haunting in stories --true crime podcasters keeping women safe (except each other), theatre-makers trying to summon Kitty for their groundbreaking play while neglecting to take care of their own, authors and journalists finding different facts to focus on to tell their versions of the truth. Here Kitty Kitty asks us to examine the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and how we decide when things are okay.
